2018 Medical Group Compensation and Productivity Survey

Now in its 31st year, AMGA’s 2018 Medical Group Compensation and Productivity Survey focuses on the individual compensation and production of experienced physicians and other clinical staff, starting salaries of new residents and experienced new hires, as well as salaries for department chairs, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants.

Survey Overview

The 2018 Medical Group Compensation and Productivity Survey includes data from a record 270 medical groups representing more than 105,000 practicing clinicians. As in years past, the survey is weighted towards large, multispecialty group practices. Groups of more than 300 physicians constituted 69.2% of respondents and nearly 100% of respondents were from multispecialty settings. Consistent with the 2017 survey, 62.1% of groups indicated that they are owned by a health system or hospital. Approximately 65% are organized as a nonprofit entity or foundation model.
